If a dog makes a mess on a road or footpath, recreation ground or public area, the mess must be cleared up.
It is an offence, under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996, for an owner not to clear up after allowing their dog to foul in undesignated areas such as a public footpath. The maximum fine for failing to clear up after a dog is £1000.
